My Book Addiction and More MBA
DANCING WITH FIRE was an interesting read. It was about looking at past behaviors, explaining why we react to certain situations the way we do, and how to move forward. Recognizing the why was really important to me. I found myself reading certain sections and saying “hey that is me”. It also explains the difference between “religion” and “spirituality”, “flight and fight response”, etc. A lot of the information was based on Buddism and for me, this was distracting at times because I am not ...more

One of my first reads in mindful awakening.

Good introduction to modern spiritualism for the non-spiritual. Some valid pointers especially concerning attachment personality types.

This book came to me at the exact right time in my life. I struggled to reconcile the themes taught in yoga of detachment with my desire to connect deeply and intimately with others.

John Amodeo writes brilliantly on how to bring mindfulness into our personal love relationships.

Embracing all of who we are and bringing our best self to share with our beloved.

How to access inner peace and calm and bring this into our relationships is key to maintaining a balanced and healthy way of being with all of life.
